- Poor Oral Hygiene
- Periodontal (Gum Disease)
- Genetic Defects
- Diet or Medications
Full & Partial Dentures
If you are missing most or all of your teeth, full dentures can replace both top and bottom teeth. You might have lost teeth as a result from periodontal disease, tooth decay, or a dental emergency. Whatever the cause, a set of dentures may enhance your life so you can smile without feeling self-conscious, and eat and talk without difficulty. Implant retained dentures provide stability to the denture.
If you lost several teeth but do not require full dentures, you may be a good candidate for a partial denture. Partial dentures consist of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base connected by metal framework. Removable partial dentures adhere to your natural teeth with invisible precision attachments. Dental crowns on your natural teeth may improve the fit of a removable partial denture and they are usually required with attachments. If you believe you are a candidate for partial dentures, you might also want to ask about dental bridges and dental implants.
